NTS Announcement: "Project Shark Jump Fail"

Hey Stitchers!  Nick the Stitch here and glad you are too!  Man what a crazy day it's been, chasing cars, sniffing for Milk-Bones and digging holes for no apparent reason... no, wait, that's my dog's to-do list.  Hmm.  Well, at any rate, I hope your day's been productive so far, because mine has!

So what do we have here?  Well, it ain't "CSI: Miami", I can tell ya that!  Here's the deal, Sparky.

We're developing a line of old-school handmade wooden toys for kids and young kids, mostly to teach dexterity and spatial stuff that the under-7 crowd would love.  Colorful things that stack, motor things that track, and "Project Shark Jump Fail" which makes a lovely sound of "whack!"

"Shark" is based on a toy I used to have, waaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy back in the day (okay, more like 1982 or 1983, but who's counting?).  It's a panel on four legs, and has 6 pegs and a small mallet.  I loved that toy, would spend hours pounding the crap out of it.  At least til my dad got tired of the noise and, despite Frank Lloyd Wright's advocating I go into architecture school, took it away.  Then again, he DID give me a real hammer and some nails, and told me to fix the fence.

For some strange reason, the fence was already in perfect shape and didn't need any work at all.  M3h.  Oh well.

The best part is, "Shark" is completely customizable on design colors.  We'll have a couple different primary and secondary color sets, or you can have it completely bare and work with your kids on coloring it any way you want it.  Don't get me wrong, I have an army of color specialists, but there are no better color specialists than customers, because they always know how it jelly rolls.

Should have something by the end of tomorrow, so keep it locked here.  In the meantime, check out the Etsy shop and feel free to shop around for end-of-holiday stuff, with everything reduced.

And hey, if you need something custom-made, why not email meHolidays are coming up and nothing says "ho ho ho" like something from the heart.

Stay awesome!
